For those who might enjoy seeing these, I am posting the quotes I have collected over the years on this page http://quotescollectedovertheyears.blogspot.com/

Stuttering is NOT a mental condition!!

I saw this post online - "Stuttering is largely a mental condition not a physical one." - and had to comment on it.

Stuttering is NOT mental! Those people who think that are in the same pool of people like parents who slap their child in the mouth every time they stutter thinking that will stop them, or the teachers who think a student who stutters should be in the slow-learner group or are mentally challenged. Most of the people I knew/know who stutter had/have very high I.Q.s and can handle very mentally challenging jobs and tasks. They are also people who have the determination and perseverance to work at a job until it is finished. Anyone who hires someone who stutters will find that they have an extremely dependable, self-starter as an employee. The world needs to change and be more understanding about stuttering!
